Ranger power point and lighter fuses are both 20 amp. 2002 Taurus,
same. The PT cruiser manual says the same.. My daughter's 2001 Civic
has a 15 amp fuse for the "power outlet". Other daughter's 2014
Elantra has 15 amp "power outlet". 2014 F150 "cig lignter" 20 amp.
2012 Ram 2500 diesel - power outlet and cig lighter SHARE 20 amp fuse.
2005 Chevy Silvarado, GMC Sierra and Chevy Suburban, Tahoe etc - 20
amp fuse for Aux Power outlet.
2014 Sonata - 20 amp for Cig Lighter.
Just for quick starters.
I bid on two inverters on Ebay. Some how, I had
two winning bids. Both 750 watt. One Husky, and
one Vector. They looked identical, except for
the brand. This was my old furnace, which got
replaced in 2004. The plan was to use a marine
battery to power the furnace for an hour or so,
if the power was out. Find out that the inverter
didn't have enough power to run the blower fan
on the furnace. Makes me wonder what size of
inverter and drill would run a scissor jack?

I bought some tiny inverter because it was cheap, and took it out to
the edge of the woods to run an electric drill. How much could a
small drill use, I thought. The inverter was nowhere near big enough.
I was going to drill a hole in the pine-cone shaped post cap of a
chain link fence. When the drill didnt' work, I touched it and
realized it would come right off with no effort. So I took it home
and drilled the hole.
Since that time, I think I've found out that the
12 volt DC wires they supply are under sized. One
other friend had similar problem, using under size
DC wires. I wonder if you had under sized DC wires?
If you have VOM and a clamp on ammeter for AC, perhaps
you can do some tests, and we can all learn.
I'd do a test on my new furnace, but don't want to risk
frying a circuit board on modified sine power.
You need to do a bit of studying on electrical theory Micky. Then
you would be able to answer some of your real simple off-the-wall
questions yourself. Start with ohm's law and the relationship between
volts, amps and watts.
With those 2 concepts nained down, you can ask more intelligent
questions, and understand the answers. (even before you ask the
